Getting By or Thriving?
In this age of technology, it’s difficult to keep up with the newest gadgets. For instance, some people learn the bare basics of how to operate a smart phone. But if they’d learn a bit more, they’d find the device more helpful. By limiting their knowledge, they miss the benefits the phone provides to make tasks easier.
Sometimes, we have this same problem in our Christian life. Scripture declares that when we come to faith in Jesus Christ, we are “new creations” (2 Cor. 5:17). In His Word, God has provided everything we need to know how to live as new creations, but we must grow in our knowledge of this new life
Are you trying to live on the mere basics of God’s Word without digging deeper to uncover richer truths and insights? If so, you are limiting your spiritual growth and missing out on the benefits that come with greater understanding of God, His ways, and His desires. You may be getting by, but you’re not thriving as the Lord desires. It’s never too late to learn more and begin enjoying the benefits of your new life in Christ.
